Welcome to Year One!

Meet the team!

Class teacher: Mr Ainsworth 

Assistant teachers: Mrs Oliver and Miss Fletcher

Our Patron Saint in Year One is Saint Bernadette. We celebrate her Feast day on April 16th. On this day the Year One children are allowed to wear their own clothes.

RE is our most important subject and is at the core of our curriculum. We do 2 hours of RE every week, a child led liturgy every Friday and four other sessions of collective worship including Mass or celebration every Thursday. Please look at the RE dates to see the dates of Mass and celebration for the terms.

We do BIG READ every single day. Your child needs to bring their book bag and reading record EVERY DAY. The children also read to their reading buddies from year five every Friday.

The children are encouraged to use their best handwriting at ALL times and to practise every day!

If you would like to know more about our handwriting please call in and we will be happy to show you how we form our letters!



In year one we do English and Maths every day. In Maths we always remember that, ‘Every number has a square ~ numbers do not like to share!’  If you would like to help your child at home with Maths then practicing number formation is very important.

We learn about exciting things in science every week! Please call in to hear about our current topics.

On Wednesday afternoon we join together with year two for Rotation! Over the year we do a range of different activities which incorporates these subjects: DT, Drama, Art, History, Geography, Cookery and Music.

We are also lucky enough to have Computer Kat who teaches us computing and coding. In year one we start this in the second half of the Autumn term.

We have lots of fun and we work really hard in year one!

Mr Wilson and Mr Blackburn teach P.E. on Wednesday morning and Friday afternoon. Please remember that your child needs a pair of outdoor trainers, blue or black shorts and a white t shirt. Please be aware that if your child does not have their kit they will be unable to take part. Thank you!
